Do you happen to think this design could be made out of wood and if so could hold up to combat and role playing?

Actually poplar is a lightweight and durable wood that takes carving easily. Granted you don't slam it against a bunch of trees, I don't see it taking much damage =)

I use White Pine for my crafting and I'm more concerned really about the handle, also I never hit trees with wooden weapons, more of other wooden weapons or bees.

Oh I was actually joking about the trees haha, I can't imagine too many people really doing that. Poplar is very similar to pine, I think it just has less grain.

Is it cheaper and can be found at Home Depot? Also you didn't answer my concern about the handle, it looks like with the size of the blade and the handle only being connected on the lower side it'd pop clean off with the most normal of swings?

I don't know about it being cheaper, it's normally about $4 a foot. To keep the handle strong I make the whole thing out out one piece of wood, and it's reinforced by the layers of wood on the handle. However, if you're still worried about strength, I could always make it from oak, which is stronger, but the grain would be harder to hide. The good thing is you'd be hard pressed to break it

Alright, I was just curious because it looks like a weapon I wouldn't mind trying to make myself. Oak is pretty expensive though, so is mahogany. Would the grain possibly be hidden if you used a fine grit sand paper?

Yea, and sealing the wood with oil-based polyurothane will help hide it all. I've used oak plenty, it's just heavy and hard to carve, but the end result can look great
